I honestly can't imagine who wouldn't want to sign this. Hope I'm right and you will!

MOVEON.ORG: Reps. John Sarbanes (MD) and John Larson (CT) are introducing legislation to create a system of public financing of elections for Congress. That would signal an end of the control of big money on our politics and be a huge step toward guaranteeing that every voice can be heard. With public financing, candidates could run for office without having a Rolodex of millionaire, special interest supporters.

Since the disastrous Citizens United ruling, corporations and ultrarich donors have been having a field day. Billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson have poured unprecedented millions into elections, drowning out the voices of everyday Americans.

Picture what Congress would look like if each of us—everyday people—had as much of a say in our own government as Charles and David Koch. Like what you see? Join us by signing up as a citizen co-sponsor of the Government by the People Act.
